Thursday's Twist challenge at The Outlawz calls for any type of folded card, and I played along for fun, and made this gate fold card:
I started off by hand embroidering the lavender stems onto a heavy white CS diecut, using regular sewing thread and 2mm seed beads:
I added butterfly stickers and a raffia bow and then matted onto lavender, and white CS.
The base card is lavender CS, and I used silver peel offs and lavender gems in the corners.
Here is a view showing the fold:
I would like to add my card to the following challenges:
SHOPPING OUR STASH, #125, STITCHING, FAUX OR REAL (The beads are from my huge stash of beads used for belly dance costumes)
